It is about the Ulster variety of the Scots language, but the majority of it is written in English. It reports on Ulster-Scots events such as dances and Burns suppers, as well as releases of traditional music on CD and books about Ulster-Scots language and culture.
"I have just received a copy of their paper, The Ulster Scot. I showed it to a republican minded friend and was intrigued by his reaction. "Isn't it great," he said.
What he liked about it is that it makes Ulster Protestants look stupid. It depicts them as chauvinistic and naive."
However, it is also true that the newspaper is enjoyed by many people.
A notable regular feature in The Ulster-Scot is "The Crack", a column written in Ulster Scots, which gives writer Conal Gillespie's opinion on recent news. It can also be read online at ulsterscotsagency.com
The editor of The Ulster-Scot is the church journalist Billy Kennedy and its associate editor is Joanne Crockard.
